The hospital is a ways outside the city. Unless you've rented a car, you need to take a taxi. Cost close to 90 dirham each way for us from our central city hotel. I really enjoyed this place. Our tour guide was very funny and informative. We got to see a routine check-up done on a falcon. You get to... More

Abu Dhabi for tourists is all about Yas Island, the Grand Mosque and the Corniche. But a visit to the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital should be on everyone's agenda. It is informative and memorable. You will not have a falcon perch on your arm at Ferrari World.

This was a great visit. You entered a room with falcons everywhere; You saw a falcon getting his claws trimmed, how feathers were replaced; you learned how valuable and important the falcons were; you got an opportunity to hold one. I held a beauty worth $20,000.

I did not realize what a wonderful visit this would be. We were able to interact with the falcons and to view a medical procedure. The tour guide was friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. It was a terrific program.

Our guide, Hasan, was humorous, interactive, and exceptionally knowledgable. Being able to see these magnificent birds, and even hold one was a wonderful experience!

We visited the Hospital on a Saturday morning with a group of 25-30 people. And I have a feeling like it wouldn't be comfortable if the group got any bigger. The 2-hour trip includes visit in a little 'museum kind of room', falcon's cage and examination room. And the last part is the coolest part. You have to "suffer" through... More

I preface this that we took this as part of a Sunshine tour group, but you might just be able to check the tour hours and drive on your own or take a taxi. Certainly in America, I know of no falcon specific vet clinics, but to see a site that's so vital to a beloved sport in the UAE,... More

Brilliant tour of the Falcon Hospital, a must see when visiting Abu Dhabi. Staff were very knowledgeable, funny and understanding. We really appreciated the thoughtfulness of staff pre-organising our taxi for the way back to our hotel. Our guide was hilarious, a very smart, multilingual, very very patient local! We thought he was awesome!

This is a unique place outside of the city, but worth the trip. We really enjoyed being able to hold the falcon and play with the cats and dogs, as they foster other animals. It was very interesting to see the inside of the hospital and all the falcons they help.

Besides camels what more is Arabic than Falcons. Whilst the other posts are correct it is not close to the city it is well worth the distance and the cab fare. Just make sure your driver knows exactly where he is going! If he can't find it or misses the turn off its a long way to come back. Where... More
